It isn't often that credit is given where credit is earned; many single parents have the roles of both parents combined into one. Just a few minutes before I grabbed my camera, mom was hitting fly balls out to her young son. The balls that managed to slide past him were shagged and returned by the trusty black Shepard-mix laying down in the shade. Here, mom was just hitting him close in "fungo shots", the dog resting in the shade and a future Josh Hamilton scrambled for everything he could. As the trio walked back in I couldn't resist a compliment; "Hey dude" I yelled out, "always remember you have a great mom!". In typical "future big-leaguer fashion", he just smiled and gave me the thumbs up. Not your typical photo of action sports, but what a lot of action it takes to be good at a sport.
